Nature of the Project
Works involved the excavation of the existing road and the creation of a new diversionary route around the site, including pedestrian access. Works were then carried out to excavate and cut out a portion of the existing services duct. A new steel reinforced concrete duct was created using insitu concrete and formwork, surrounded by concrete piles, to link the new Non-Clinical Support building with the proposed maternity building. Once the duct was completed the link road was reinstated and the remainder of the duct not under the link road buried. Works are ongoing to reconnect all diverted services through the new duct.
